WPR/RC40.R8

Rescheduling of Sessions of the World Health Assembly

         The Regional Committee,

         Noting the Director-General's proposal to hold Health Assemblies later in the year in order, among other things, to limit the raising of political issues not directly related to international health work;*

  1. ENDORSES his proposal;
  2. RECOMMENDS that the third option should be taken, namely o rescheduling all governing bodies, so that regional committees would meet in January/February/March of the next year, the long session of the Executive Board would be in May/June, and the Health Assembly would meet in September/October/November.
